As police close in, Facebook killer takes own life

As police close in, Facebook killer takes own life

The order came through the McDonald's drive-thru window in Harborcreek Township, Pennsylvania: Chicken McNuggets and a side of fries.

Stephens was at the center of a nationwide manhunt after police say he killed 74-year-old Robert Godwin, Sr. on Easter Sunday at 695 East 93rd Street.

Pennsylvania State Police officers found Stephens in Erie County, Pennsylvania, after getting a tip around 11 a.m. local time from a "concerned citizen" who saw Stephens at a McDonald's, Major William Teper Jr. of the Pennsylvania State Police told a news conference on Tuesday afternoon.

That launched a 2-mile (3-kilometer) vehicle chase that ended when troopers tried to spin his auto to get him to stop.

"As the officers approached that vehicle Steve Stephens took his own life", Williams said.

Stephens had left the restaurant but stopped briefly when officers located his auto nearby.

The chief said the case started with one tragedy and ended with another.

Detectives spoke with the suspect on Sunday by cellphone and tried to persuade him to surrender, police said.

"We've interviewed several people involved in this, and I don't think there's any rhyme or reason for what happened", Williams told reporters Monday.

Police would not speculate on what was behind the killing, but videos Stephens posted showed him talking about losing everything he had to gambling and trouble with his girlfriend.

Police said he was last seen driving a white ford fusion with OH temporary tags E363630. Police earlier Sunday had said that Stephens had broadcast it on Facebook Live. "I can't believe I'm never going to talk to my father no more", she said through tears.

Mark Zuckerberg spoke publicly for the first time on Tuesday about the Cleveland murder video that stayed up on Facebook for almost two hours before it was removed.

"He was just a no problem person at all, compared to a lot of people", said Cynthia Coley, a former neighbor.

Can Facebook do anything to keep graphic images from being posted and shared from Facebook Live?

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg addressed the "Facebook Killer" tragedy at the beginning of his company's annual developer's conference on Tuesday morning.
